What Guides Our Work

We envision more social justice and a world where people with diverse abilities can live, learn, work and play in inclusive communities. The unique value of each person is revealed and honoured, individual aspirations are supported, and barriers to opportunity are removed.

Our mission is to serve as advocates for persons with diverse abilities, their families and other community members and empower them with the knowledge and opportunity to make informed choices and exercise control over their lives. We are here to create positive social change so everyone is valued and respected interdependent members of society.

The Essence of Life is a philosophy that the Integra family has adopted. It helps us think about life for Individuals with developmental disabilities in the same way we think about life for ourselves, our families, and our communities. It is about finding creative ways to break down barriers and help the people we support meet their own goals and realize their dreams.

Some people with autism have difficulty processing intense, multiple sensory experiences at once. This animation gives the viewer a glimpse into sensory overload, and how often our sensory experiences intertwine in everyday life.

Integra is located and provides services on unceded Indigenous land belonging to the Lekwungen People, also known as the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations communities. Unceded means that this land was never surrendered, relinquished or handed over in any way.  It is essential to the process of reconciliation that this truth be acknowledged and recognized. Here at Integra, we are working towards better understanding how we can support Indigenous sovereignty as settlers on this land.  Integra arises from and is a part of the settler colonial state and thus exists at the expense of the Indigenous people who have both moral and legal right to this land and to self governance.  As an organization we therefore have an obligation to better understand how we can promote the work of decolonization.
